I used this guide to put my new fan in and let me just say THANK YOU!!! All I could find was ones for regular Switches on YouTube and not the Lite. The only problem I had was I'm not sure which side of the cable on the fan should be facing up. I looked on your website and the fan listen on here has one side with a gold part at the end where you insert it into the connector. Is that the side that goes up?
